Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy held his season-ending press conference on Tuesday and as you might expect, he was questioned about defensive coordinator Dom Capers‘ future.
And… how dare you, fans and media types! How dare you question Mike McCarthy about anything!
Mike McCarthy is appalled that he even has to answer such non-sensical questions! Mike McCarthy take his ball! Mike McCarthy go home!
“I think it’s totally premature to make those types [of decisions],” McCarthy said of Capers’ future with the team. “That’s what knee-jerk reactive people do. You don’t make crazy decisions like this, especially a man of Dom Capers’ ability, his experience. I trust him, the level of responsibility he has with our coaching staff. I think it’s ridiculous that I have to answer the question, frankly. I’m appalled by it.
“There is a process that goes on. I would not do my job, I would not fulfill my responsibility, if I didn’t look at the job that Dom Capers has done, what Mike McCarthy has done, what Tom Clements has done, all the way down. I can promise you that’s what is going to happen. I don’t dig the drama stuff. I get the concern. We have great fans. But there are no decisions going to be made today. We’ve never operated that way and never will.”
Yeah! So there! You fuckin’ jerks!
Although McCarthy said he feels confident Capers will be the Packers defensive coordinator earlier in the press conference, his comments obviously left the door open for change.
Capers will be evaluated and so will everyone else. Those evaluations will begin this week and then we’ll see what happens.
In the meantime, McCarthy will have a hoagie, and extra large Diet Coke and a cry, but no more of your silly questions, thank you very much!
